Every season both Megan and I like to change our fragrances to reflect the changing environment. Because we are often working with clients we are careful in what we select so it is neutral and clean and not distracting from a styling session. Scent can be highly linked to memories and emotions so it is always safer to tread lightly.
As we continue our search for healthier products this year our scents have started to change as well. I am finding myself more drawn to wearing a blend of essential oils most days that adapt to my own ph (because your scent should be as unique as you are). If you are curious to get a little more of the nitty-gritty on natural fragrance options and what your nose knows--check out this Credo Blog covering the topic.
Below is a listing of our favorite mainstream scents -some are unisex and others are better for outside client sessions, but all are perfect for a mix of your spring-summer adventures.
Enjoy and stay stylish,
Van Cleef & Arpels Gardénia Pétale Eau de Parfum, $150.00
I love the smell of gardenias and have had a hard time finding a perfume has a simple, pure scent. Lush and feminine, this perfume is the truest to the natural gardenia scent that I have found. It includes green notes, citrus notes, lily of the valley, jasmine, and gardenia.
Gucci Bloom, $83
Gucci always has wonderful fragrances. Bloom is slightly more masculine (but not overwhelming) while still being crisp, clean and, refreshing. It has a blend of white florals, galbanum leaf, cassis, musk, and sandalwood.
Fresh and crisp this unisex fragrance has had me taking a detour in stores for a midday spritz. The top notes of bright neroli and bergamot remind me of a Negroni on the Italian coastline. The fresh citrus scent is light and airy but strong enough to hold up on a warm summer evening.
Clean, peppery, and slightly herbal this parfum by Aesop is another great unisex scent. This is a low maintenance fragrance with earthy top notes of citrus and basil. Because of this, it's a good match for the contemporary minimalist. This parfum has less staying power than other fragrances and softens on the skin with long wear.
